Sponsored by Innovative Interfaces. The digital age has given us everything faster, easier, and better. So naturally your students and professors expect great experiences from the library, but technology has not kept pace. A recent survey shows that visits to campus libraries have declined over the last five years as people turn to the internet for information – even though only 8% of people trust the information they find there. Based on this first-of-its-kind research, Innovative has taken bold steps to build a new kind of discovery experience for students, professors, and researchers. Innovative’s new Inspire Discovery provides the most comprehensive and contextual results ever available. Discovery uses native linked data to reveal multi-dimensional relationships and uncover new, unexpected connections and ideas.

Cairn University is one of the first academic libraries to test this new tool and see firsthand how students and professors respond. In this session, Stephanie Kaceli, Library Director at Cairn University, will share their involvement with the day-to-day development of Discovery, how they determined the needs of their library for next generation software, and how staff and students are navigating the new interface.

Academic libraries must provide modern tools that are fast, comprehensive, and intuitive. Cairn University will be one of the first to offer this next generation technology. Join us to hear more about their ground-breaking solution.

What you’ll learn in this session:
  • Cairn University’s experience searching their data with contextualized results, being a part of the day-to-day development process, and how staff and students have responded so far
  • Insights from a first of its kind study, where academic professors and researchers share their personal experiences
  • An update from Innovative staff on how they built a discovery experience from the ground up based on BIBFRAME, not MARC records
